8-oz. medium-size egg noodles
1 ½ tsp. salt
3 T. butter or margarine, plus extra to toss noodles after cooking
Salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste
3/4 cup pecans, chopped
1 cup chopped fresh, flat-leaf parsley; reserve some uncut sprigs to garnish
3 medium cloves garlic, minced
1 large mild onion, chopped
6 saltine crackers, crushed

Âľ cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided

1 cup Half & Half

Paprika to sprinkle






In a Dutch oven, cook the noodles with 1 ½ tsp. of salt in lots of boiling water, until just tender, about 6 to 7 minutes (do not overcook!).  Drain noodles, do not wash & toss with a small amount of extra butter or margarine.  Taste the noodles, & add salt & pepper to taste.  While noodles are cooking, melt the 3 T. butter or margarine, & sauté the pecans, parsley, garlic, onion, & crackers for about 5 minutes.  Prepare a deep baking dish with spray-oil.  Make 3 layers of ingredients; beginning with 1/3 of the drained noodles, 1/3 pecan mixture, & 1/3 of the grated Parmesan cheese.  Repeat layers 2 more times.  Pour the Half & Half evenly over the entire dish & sprinkle with paprika.  Cover & bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.  Uncover & sprinkle again with paprika; then cook, uncovered, an additional 5 minutes, or until just browned on top.  Garnish top with sprigs of parsley.  Serves 6.

You surely can’t miss on this one for a change of pace for a pasta dish.  It is also ideal as a vegetarian entrée.
